Venezuelan Attorney General Luisa Ortega Díaz disclosed that the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) is working on “a decision to deprive the Attorney General Office of authority over criminal investigation.”
For Ortega Díaz, the potential event would be “another throwback in human rights.”
“It is not possible that the State is intended to be destroyed. If you take issue with an official heading an institution, you ought not to attack that institution,” she said during an interview with journalist Vladimir Villegas on Unión Radio.
The senior officer counted 63 casualties resulting from the nationwide protests for more than 64 days so far, including 19 cases under investigation in connection with human rights abuses.
She added that 423 people have been captured in relation to killings, with 35 people still to be detained, including 19 security agents.
